Starbucks Secret Menu: The Need-To-Know Hacks

If you visit Starbucks regularly, you probably have a favourite drink which you get each and every time.

But you may have also heard about the Starbucks Secret Menu, which allows you to customise drinks to recreate some of the most popular chocolate bars, desserts and flavours – without them strictly being on the menu.

This is great news because the menu is actually pretty limited and basic. So, knowing the few additions to make can open up an entirely new world.

Once you find your favourite, you will never opt for a regular old iced coffee or cappuccino again.

Is The Starbucks Secret Menu Available In The UK?

Yes! As long as your store has all of the additions needed for your chosen drink, then there is no reason why you can’t make the most of it.

But the recipes aren’t officially from Starbucks, so there is no guarantee that they will have your chosen ingredients in on the day. You will have to check with the barista to see if it is possible.

What Is On The Menu?

The list is pretty unlimited with all of the additional ingredients available in Starbucks stores. The clue is in the ordering – simply asking your barista for one of the below will likely result in confusion or a very annoyed person.

Despite you having the freedom to make your own drinks, some more official picks really caught our eye. These are our favourite picks.
